After cleaning everything on the KA640 panel board (ethernet switches,
in particular) the thing still seems dead on Ultrix 4.0.  The only 
device it picks up is ln0, as a Lance ethernet.  Is that what is
actually on the KA640?  It can ping and ftp itself in software,
but nothing is going into or out of the ports onto the net.
The dssi drives are read and driven correctly, as is the TK50,
but it almost seems as if the drivers are not actually using
or driving the KA640 ethernet ports.  No activity lights come
up.  Nothing seems to work in ifconfig, yet ifconfig runs and
accepts the parameters to ln0.  Anyone have any thoughts as to
what might be happening?
